Who do you think made Harry Toffolo’s five-a-side team?

The Huddersfield Town left-back was tasked with naming a side made up of players that he’s played with during his career.

Here’s who he selected:

Goalkeeper – Jordan Pickford

In goal, I’d probably have Jordan Pickford. I played with him when I was in England’s Under-20s. His ability was phenomenal and his ability on ball was outrageous, it was like having another midfielder but playing at the back; that’s the way goalkeepers are going nowadays.

Defender – Calum Chambers

I’m a defender, so I should really be going with two, but I’ve only gone with one. It’s so difficult, but I’d go with Calum Chambers. I played against him in Academy football, but we played together for England as well. You could see, even at 17, that he was going to crack on and have the career he’s having.

Midfielder – James Maddison

James Maddison, he’s at Leicester now and I played with him at Norwich. You can see the ability he’s got. These are top Premier League players now and to be able to have shared the pitch with them is great.

Midfielder – Wes Hoolahan

When I was at Norwich, Wes Hoolahan was unplayable. In training he’d nutmeg more people than I’ve ever seen anyone do before, and that’s me included! His ability was incredible and the career he had in the EFL and in the Premier League has done him justice.

Striker – Marcus Rashford

Upfront I’d say Marcus Rashford. I played with him for England’s Under-20s, you just have to say his name, and everyone goes “okay”. He’s got the ability and is a household name, so it’s an easy decision to put him in.
